The Moose Jaw Warriors blanked the visiting Lethbridge Hurricanes 3-0 tonight at the Civic Center. Jesse Paradis got on the board first with the lone goal of the beginning 20 minutes of play. Spencer Edwards and Joey Kornelsen each added a goal in the second to make it a 3-0 heading into the last period.
No goals would be scored in the final twenty minutes, but the period would not go without a ton of action. Combined with a number of scuffles and fights, Brandon Anderson, goalie for the Canes, dropped the gloves and skated towards center. Up for the challenge, 17 year old rookie goal tender Brandon Stone left his crease and headed for center. The refs would stop the ensuing fight and send both Stone and Anderson off to the dressing rooms. Brandon Stone earned his second Warriors win of the season and his first shut out of his WHL career.
Post game, the Warriors coaching and business staff were “pied” at center ice for a local project entitled “MJ Place” that will benefit local individuals who suffer from Crohn’s and Colitis.
